From a bottle into my snifter glass.

A- A very dark brown that almost looks black until you hold it up to the light. It has a very light that stays on the surface.

S- It is a nice mix of roast and hop notes. it smells bitter like dark chocolate.

T- It taste a lot like it smells, roast, dark chocolate, and hop notes come through. a slight alcohol bite afterwards.

M- It is very smooth with a slight bite afterwards the roasted notes stay in your mouth for awhile.

O- It is a great black IPA, it has the best of both worlds. You get the great strong hop taste coming from it and then the stout/porter roast notes and dark chocolate.

This pours out in a dark black, midnight color with some ruby color coming through in the light with a tan huge rocky head. Beautiful stuff!

The aroma is just wonderful of sweet grapefruit, very citrusy, a bit of pine, and then some wonderful coffee and roasted malt in the back.

The flavor is really interesting. It hits you with a juicy juicy hop profile. Mango, pineapple, peaches, tons of grapefruit, but then gets you with some coffee and roasted malt towards the end. The finish is a strong grapefruit peel flavor. It cleans up very easily and makes this beer very drinkable, despite the ABV.

It's very much an extremely well made DIPA along with some big robust stout/porter character. No hint of alcohol and super drinkable.

This is a gem!
